Safety Not Guaranteed Review

I was really taken aback with how much I enjoyed this movie. It seemed like it would be just another quirky indie offering that was entertaining but not really that much different than the other quirky indie movies already made.

It all starts with an ad in the paper, “WANTED: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke.” And oddly enough, the ad ends with, “I have only done this once before.” The ad is seen by a magazine writer who takes two interns and heads off to write a piece on the guy who placed the ad.

For most of the movie, it seems pretty clear that Kenneth, the time traveler, is a little off balanced. He claims to be followed and the reason he gives to one of the interns about why he wants to go back in time turns out to not be true. Or is it? Because midway through the movie, we discover that maybe Kenneth is telling the truth. And all of a sudden, this sweet story about relationships and healing turns into a potential sci-fi movie. So does Kenneth travel back in time? Well, I don’t want to ruin the movie for you but if you haven’t seen it already, it’s well worth searching out.
